Harrisburg Century and Trifecta

Published on 3/8/2019

HBC’S Three Creek Century and Trifecta Registration Opens Jan. 1!


HBC's Three Creek Century will be held at the Penn Township Fire Department Complex on Pine Road on Sunday, Sept. 15. Choose your distance: 25, 50. 75 or 100 miles or the 18 mile option on the lovely, traffic free Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. Early bird registration is only $30.00 for this well supported and enjoyable event. The homemade chicken corn soup is so good riders keep returning just for that! The South Mountain Challenge option will again be offered on the 50 mile route. All 50 mile riders will bike to the rest stop at Shippensburg Township Park where they will have the option of choosing the traditional route back to the firehouse or adding in additional climbing up to Big Flat. This Century is HBC's largest fundraiser so be sure to invite your friends and relatives to join you on this scenic and well-organized ride. We had over 600 riders last year!


The Century Committee is proud to announce that The Three Creek Century will once again be part of the Central Pennsylvania Bicycling Trifecta.  The Trifecta brings together the Penn State Chocolate Tour in Hershey, the Lancaster Bicycle Club’s Covered Bridge Classic in Lancaster and the Harrisburg Bicycle Club’s Three Creek Century near Carlisle to form central Pennsylvania’s premiere cycling event.   Riders who complete all three events will earn a commemorative glass mug. 

New for 2019: You can register for all three Trifecta events with just one form and payment!


The Chocolate Tour and the Covered Bridge Classic are very popular events that may sell out, so don’t miss your chance to register. Each event must be registered for separately and all registrations open Jan. 1. Register early for best pricing.


Registration information and more details about the Century and the Trifecta can be found after Dec. 31 at
